Corruption and Politics in Hong Kong and China Summary

Corruption and Politics in Hong Kong and China by T. Wing Lo

This text aims to answer such questions as: is corruption just a lubricant that oils the wheels of social order? What are the links between corruption and authoritarianism? Do governments use the censure of corruption to denigrate and suppress opposition whilst continuing themselves to abuse public power for private gain? How has corruption been defined and handled by different governments in Hong Kong and China since the 1950s; and what are the significances of their anti-corruption policies and campaigns? How is it that, for instance, nepotism in China or insider trading in Hong Kong have been rarely criminalized? How do the corrupt one year become next year's heroes of free enterprise? Wing Lo's comparison between China and Hong Kong sets out to provide answers to these kinds of questions. His book should be of interest to scholars and students of criminology, political science, sociology and development studies.
